We’ve all been there before, it might be just before Christmas or during the January sales, you’re tired from a long day’s shopping. But then, you wander into a shop that has an amazing feel to it, the design is beautiful and suddenly your tired legs urge you to carry on further and further into the store. This is what great retail store interior design is all about, ensuring your store is a great place for your customers to be, which will in turn result in sales. Here are some of the stores we have taken inspiration from:
AIGLE Flagship Store, Paris
Our first takes us to one of the fashion capitals of the world, Paris, and the AIGLE flagship store. You could be forgiven for thinking you had walked into somebody’s house as you enter the shop, but that’s the clever thinking of the designers. Products are dotted around the house on the fireplace, stove, and greenhouse, all with wooden flooring and vintage wallpaper as a backdrop.
Pepe Jeans London Flagship Store, Rome
Occupying 150 square metres in the centre of Rome, the Pepe Jeans flagship store in Rome is definitely one of the best examples of retail store interior design at its finest. The store has an almost cellar like feel with its rough stone walls, cleverly placed antiquities and simple white wooden shelving, all of which are offset by the modern clothes on sale.
Tommy Bahamas Store, 5th Avenue, New York
A tropical paradise in the centre of bustling Manhattan, the Tommy Bahamas store on New York’s prestigious 5th Avenue is a 13,000 square foot retail heaven. Featuring Floridian palm trees, driftwood and handmade seashell structures, you could easily think you were on a Caribbean island, especially with the mellow chimes of tropical music playing in your ears. Conservation and sustainability are forefront in the store – the window shutters are made from wooden planks of the old Coney Island Boardwalk, while the menswear is displayed on a 14 foot, 250 year old elm tree.
Frivole Prestige Perfumery, Wroclaw
A very futuristic take on retail store interior design, this perfumery in Wroclaw is almost space-age. The colour scheme of black and white with golden accents gives off a very contemporary yet classy vibe, which is offset by the futuristic geometric structures. The store is cleverly split in two halves, with one half black and the other white, which is compatible with the type of product on sale in each.
14 oz. Shoe Store, Berlin
Situated in the heart of Berlin, this store of only 40 square metres features a large selection of both men and women’s shoes. Another store with a slight cellar feel, the exposed brick walls, dark ceilings and wooden shelves combine beautifully with the leather footwear and slightly yellow lighting to create warm cosy atmosphere.
